Lady young road

Lady Young Road to be closed again Tuesday during specific hours

The Ministry of Works and Transport says the Lady Young Road, Morvant will be temporarily closed tomorrow from 9 am to 3 pm, and again from 7 pm Tuesday to 5 am on Wednesday 7th March, 2018, for further slope stabilization works.

The road was reopened this morning to vehicular traffic after being closed over the weekend.

The road was cut off by a landslide last Thursday and the ministry has been working to ensure that there are no further land slips since then.

Lady Young Road reopens today

Motorists can officially return to the Lady Young Road route today, as the green light has been given for its reopening by the Ministry of Works and Transport.

The major roadway, which crosses the foothills of the Northern Range, became impassable last week after two landslides made impassable and dangerous to traverse. The road was officially closed off to vehicular traffic as work crew cleared away debris and ensured it was safe before giving the all clear for vehicles to return.

Lady Young Road closed until tomorrow

The Lady Young Road will remain closed today to facilitate the clearance of debris by the Ministry of Works and Transport in order to be reopened to the public tomorrow. This was announced by Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan yesterday.

Motorists were able to drive from the Morvant Junction up the Lady Young where they had to make a detour down Maryland Hill. The Lookout was used as a staging area for the heavy earth moving equipment and trucks to remove the falling debris and rubble.
